Sean Paul is overjoyed that the video for No Lie, his Dancehall-Pop collaboration with British singer Dua Lipa, has surpassed the one billion views mark on YouTube five years after it was released. It's the Jamaican superstar's first song as a lead artist to reach the billion-view mark on the video-sharing site.
Sean Paul is still the most popular dancehall artist on the planet and remains undefeated internationally. With his 2016 single "No Lie," featuring Dua Lipa, the dancehall sensation scored his third billion views song on YouTube just a few days ago.
The Grammy winner is one of only a few dancehall singers whose YouTube videos have received more than one billion views, making him one of the most commercially successful Jamaican artists of all time.
'No Lie' has had over 1,000,200,973 views to date. On November 18, 2016, Island Records released the catchy dancehall pop tune. The official music video, on the other hand, was published over two months later. Based on current momentum, the video is gaining about 500,000 new views every day.
Sean was recently nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Reggae Album for his seventh studio album, Live N Livin, which was released in 2021. Sean trades the mic with Buju Banton and Damian Marley on the album, which is a collaborative celebration of his Jamaican heritage and dancehall roots.
Paul is set to heat up 2022 with his eighth full-length album and Island Records debut, Scorcha, on May 27.
